Denis asked me to copy that here so it's easier to keep track of
I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but the "New Posts" view in the forum seems to always show all posts, with the oldest post at the very top. In other words, it does the opposite of what it claims to be doing
If it showed the newest posts on top instead, it would definitely be better. The old forum (as well as this forum before the public launch) had a feature that showed me all the posts I hadn't seen yet, which was super helpful.
Unfortunately, that feature seems to be disabled now. (Which would be fine if the "new posts" thing worked correctly)
Also, it says (20) in the tab title, as if I had new notifications, but I can't see or access these notifications anywhere. The old forum had a thing in the top menu from where I could see my notifications. (I can go to my profile settings and then click on alerts to see the notifications, or click alerts from the profile popup, but that's at least one pageload away and not intuitive. I'd expect there to be a separate thing showing me the number of alerts and opening a popup with alerts when clicked. Or alternatively, not have the alert count displayed in the page title)
Don't get me wrong, I think the old forum was a bit overloaded and convoluted, and I think it's good to have a more streamlined, simpler forum. I just think the features that are there should work as expected /advertised; instead, as of now, they are a bit confusing and counter-intuitive.
